Danger. Danger.
I'm getting old and maybe a little bit stranger.
So danger. I'd like to welcome you to my mid-life crisis.
You know admission's free, but you're not allowed to save me.
Just strangers.
Text me back a little later tonight. I said later. Much later.
I'm trying to get shit done.
You know that I'm no fun.
I'm not sure what happened.

Dial up the color of the roadside snapshot.
I need a reason to stick around.

Hater. I'm a hater.
I don't like anything that makes me feel stupid,
so waiter, would you be so kind as to fetch me another martini?
Cuz you know this therapy is so damn expensive.

Filter everything through black and white,
soften all the edges, so I can get some sleep.
I thought that I'd walk fearlessly through life,
but it seems I've lost my moxie.
It's a first world problem.

Follow me into my big, black cave.
We're really off the grid now.
We can go around naked.
I never thought I'd throw it all away,
to feel like I'm still breathing.
It's a first world problem.
First world problem.
First world problem.
Frist world problem
It's a first.
